When he demonstrated and instructed me on what to do, I patiently listened to him (for once!) and did as commanded. I was on cloud nine (even though in deep sea)! Though the marine life wasn't extraordinary, it was good enough for a first-timer like me. As luck would have it, a few of the snorkellers beside me had few slices of bread. While they tossed it on the sea, a group of hungry fishes gathered around to devour the food. I found myself jumping with joy (forget the brutal reef!) and clapping hands like a six-year-old. Gosh, it was truly magical! All thanks to my husband who was patient but firm in his decision of dragging me to the sea for snorkeling, even though I was throwing tantrums!
What to know of an Island Tour
Do not, for the love of God forget your Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Hat, Camera, Beach towel, Swimwear and some Thai Baht when you head out for an Island Tour. Pregnant ladies and children below 1 year old are not allowed on speedboats. You can never predict the tides. Also, be wary of the time. The tour will ask you to get back to the boats after a specific duration. Do it! If not, they will leave you stranded on the island. Well, that do seem like an interesting idea though!
